democrats decided to use one of the days allocated to them to debate the issue. their leader was clearly unimpressed with what gordon brown had had to say. >> hearing the prime minister, i think his answers on the ghurka issue are deeply evasive. how is it honest or decent to say that soldiers who have served 20 years can come and live in this country, when he knows full well that the majority of them only serve 15? how is it honest reason to say that they have to prove their illness was caused from the military service, when he knows full well that the free list veterans cannot do that? can he see there is a simple, moral principle at stake? if someone is prepared to die for this country, surely they deserve to live in this country. >> a short time later, the debate got under way and hostility from his own bench as soon became apparent. next i rejoice that they enrich the borough educationally and public life. they also earned money and pay taxes. the thing that upsets me is the degree of inevitability about it. as sure as night turns in today, they will win ultimately. why don't you em

of 1079 uk personnel, 4600 coalition personnel, and 150,000 iraqi civilians. many of us want to know the cause of this war and why it failed. if the session is held in private, that may not be possible. will the prime minister think again in holding a secret inquiry? it is the wrong thing to do. >> later the man in charge of the inquiry announced that he believed as many as the hearings as possible should be held in public. but that was not the only change in heart forced on minister appeared here in the house of lords, when lord came to the house to announce that the government was shelving its controversial plans to privatize the royal mail. the bill had cleared the lord's was facing problems in the house of commons. he told appears that in the current economic crisis it had not been possible to reach an acceptable bill. >> my lords, market conditions had proved impossible to conclude a deal for the royal mail on terms that we can be confident. there is therefore no prospect in current circumstances of achieving the objectives of the postal service's bill. when market conditions ch

that were going to help us. i thought we needed a real stimulus bill they could have a real impact on people's lives, helping small business. what i saw washington do is go in the exact opposite direction. if they came up with a $787,000 -- $787 billion stimulus bill. the place was that if we pass the stimulus plan, on employment would cap out at 8%. we are now approaching 10% nationally, and about 50% here in gadsden county. -- 15% hearing gets in county. the plan i support it would have created more jobs at half the price. it would help fix roads and bridges and help small businesses keep those employees that they had employed, and perhaps even hiring a few other people through tax credits. that plan would have done much better than what we have seen the last six months. it was just six months and one week ago that the stimulus bill was passed. very expensive and i think the wrong direction. i also won a mention cap-and- trade. this piece of legislation was passed at the end of june. many refer to as a national energy tax. out of concern for the environment, they want to pass this bill and
